    Do you know of anyone who has had the shot that Close to IVIG?…[Read more]

    Paul, i have had double vision for over a year until I got the steroid ,SolumedrolI when I had the IVIG 2 wks ago.. It only cleared up for one day. It makes me loose balance. The eye dr gave me glasses with prisms for reading. Riding in a car becomes frightening. What do you think helped your double vision?

  • My arms and legs go weak it is hard to lift them. They flop and drop. Before treatment i would fall. Falling down steps was the finale in finding out just what was going on. My doctor ordered 1000 mg of steroid in the last IVIG yesterday and that has helped me today even my double vision has improved. Im a newby. Thanks for your comments

    I see double forgive typing errors

    • Hey @marym
      I also get IVIG but my treatment is every 4 weeks. The only vaccines I have been advised about not getting are live ones, but you should be able to get all others. I get a flu shot yearly. I would speak with your neurologist about the timing of vaccines so you get an adequate immune response and make antibodies. If it’s too close to…[Read more]
